FWTools: Open Source GIS Binary Kit for Windows and Linux
Entry ID: FWTools


Summary
Abstract: FWTools is a set of Open Source GIS binaries for Windows (win32) and Linux
(x86) systems produced by Frank Warmerdam (ie. FW). It was previously known as
OpenEV_FW. The kits are intended to be easy for end users to install and get
going with. No fudzing with building from source, or having to collect lots of
interrelated packages. FWTools includes OpenEV, GDAL, MapServer, PROJ.4 and
OGDI as well as some supporting components.

The FWTools kits also aims to track the latested development versions of the
packages included as opposed to official releases. While this may mean the
packages are less stable, it is intended to give folks a chance to use the
latest and greatest. FWTools releases also are a means by which I make recent
development version bug fixes available to a wider audience than would be
prepared to build them from the source.

released within the last few years.
